Criminal Defamation Law
Louisiana defines defamation as a means of communication – written or spoken – that is meant to injure a person or business' reputation or livelihood. ... Whoever commits the crime of defamation shall be fined not more than five hundred dollars, or imprisoned for not more than six months, or both.

Breach of Contract:  A breach of contract happens when there are agreements in place and there was a failure on the part of one party to complete it as contracted. There are numerous factors that can be considered a breach including failure to act in good faith in the agreement, not completing the job on time; not performing according to the terms; or not doing the job at all.

Tortious Interference with an Agreement or Contract - To prove tortious interference with an existing contract, four elements must be proven: 1) The plaintiff had a valid contract. 2) The defendant willfully and intentionally interfered with the contract. 3) The interference proximately caused the plaintiff’s injury. 4) The plaintiff incurred actual damage or loss

Loss of your Earnings: You are also entitled to recover the loss of earnings suffered from your injuries. Thus, wages, commissions, bonuses and all other earnings and fringe benefits are recoverable.

Wrongful Death: Damages for "wrongful death" are available for the wife, husband, parent and child of the deceased person. Sometimes, persons related by blood or marriage, who were dependent upon the deceased, may recover. Damages are not limited to economic loss and may include damages for mental anguish, emotional pain and suffering, loss of society, companionship, comfort, protection, marital care, parental care, filial care, attention, advice, counsel, training, guidance or education. Damages are available for the deceased's estate as well.

Pain And Suffering: Ordinarily, the most "valuable" and "critical" element of your bodily injury claim is the right to compensation for physical pain and mental anguish you have suffered and will endure in the future because of your accident injury or abuse. These general damages are in addition to and may be far more than the amount of your lost earnings and medical expenses.

Disfigurement: If the injury causes scarring or other unsightly marks, you are entitled to recover for the disfigurement and humiliation or embarrassment associated with the disfigurement.

Damage To The Marital Relationship: Serious injuries to one spouse may cause damage to the marital relationship. If this occurs, you are entitled to recover for the loss of society, affection, assistance, conjugal fellowship and loss or impairment of sexual relations that occurs.

Louisiana is a Per Se Defamation State
The defamation statutes enacted in  Louisiana provide plaintiffs the ability to file a defamation per se complaint against a defendant. Defamation per se is any statement that is, by itself, defamatory. Statements falsely accusing a plaintiff of false accusations of criminal behavior, or false statements.  In defamation per se cases, the plaintiff does not have to prove damages in order to successfully litigate because the statements are prima facie defamatory.

Medical and Hospital Expenses: The cost and expense of all reasonable and necessary medical expenses incurred and that are reasonably certain to be incurred in the future because of your injury, are recoverable. These expenses include past (already-incurred) medical expenses and costs and also future medical expenses, which may be the product of the original injury or that result from an increased susceptibility to future injury. All forms of medical care and treatment, whether hospital, medical, therapy, nursing, diagnostic testing, surgery, physical rehabilitation or pain management are included. You can recover the full value of your medical expenses from the responsible party even if your health insurer has paid all or part of your bills. However, be aware that most health insurance contracts have a "subrogation" clause, that gives them the right to be reimbursed for any amounts they have paid you.

Loss of Future Earnings: If your injuries permanently limit your ability to earn, you can recover the value of the reduction in earning capacity with reasonable probability which will occur in the future. These damages compensate you for your lost earning power over the remainder of your working years, and can be even greater than the pain and suffering or general damage awards mentioned above.

Damage To Your Vehicle Or Other Personal Property: You are entitled to be made whole for any damage to your personal property. Where they can repair your vehicle, you are entitled to recover the reasonable cost of restoring the vehicle to its condition before the collision. In addition, you may recover the cost of substitute transportation necessarily incurred while they are repairing your vehicle. If the cost of repair is more than the value of your vehicle (a "total loss"), you are entitled to recover the full value of your vehicle before it was damaged.
